The Carbon Black paint work is beautifully fluid, full of menace and shows a deep and consistent shine throughout. The detailing team have worked to produce a stunning example that looks as good as the pictures suggest. The trim and rubber seals around the car present well without showing any major wear for its age and mileage.

This E46 M3 represents the true image of the modern classic BMW with a considered style of purposeful proportions and elegant lines.

The interior matches the exterior condition, it looks and feels well looked after; the leather still retaining its matte finish from new with only the lightest of driver’s bolster wear to report. The dash and door cards are in good condition and the alcantara steering wheel prone to wear retains good texture, the M sport stitching perfectly clean and proudly displaying its Motorsport heritage. The CS specific cube aluminium interior trim defines the cabin and presents in excellent order.

All of the electrics work as they should whilst the spec extends to the sublime Harman Kardon audio and Navigation.

Having been almost solely maintained by BMW UK main dealers, this S54 is in tip-top condition; a technical masterpiece with exceptional performance and a buzz saw engine note all whilst delivering respectable economy. The car drives incredibly well and remains tight and in keeping with its mileage; the CSL steering rack and revised springs / dampers make a significant difference to the car’s poise and performance on the road.

The SMG II gearbox offers considerations for both cruising and more spirited driving and operates exactly as it should.

Arguably one of the finest production car designs the 19″ lightweight alloy wheels show the CS apart from the standard production car. All the alloy wheels are in excellent condition while all four wheels are shod in Michelin Pilot Super sports that still show plenty of tread.

The larger brakes borrowed from the CSL show very well, with plenty of pad / disc life and free of pad material in the cross drilled area.

This CS was first registered in June 2005 by BMW Vines Guildford with the running-in check completed just two months later at 1,418 miles.

The car has subsequently been serviced on a further 9 occasions, with the most recent in June 2018 at 60,377 miles. The next service not due until June 2020 or until indicated on the dash due to mileage.

Showing a full BMW service history apart from one specialist service the comes with a fully stamped book and a large file of invoices to document maintenance.

Inspected in house by our senior BMW technician the car has a clean bill of health and car comes with all hand books and spare keys.
